Celebrating the most innovative teachers on February 28!

Fast Company just named DonorsChoose.org one of 2019’s Most Innovative Companies — so we’re celebrating the world’s most innovative teachers!

One-day-only boost on May 6, 2019 for all approved, live projects on DonorsChoose.org

Update 5/7/2019: Funding for the Google.org sitewide boost has finished. Thanks to our incredible community, we were able to raise more than $1,000,000 in just one day!


Today only, when you support a classroom, your donation will receive a 50% boost from Google.org. Happy Teacher Appreciation Week!

Google.org is saying “thank you” to teachers across the country by giving your donations a 50% boost. On May 6, all donations to live, approved classroom projects will receive a 50% boost. (For example, the boost will turn a $50 donation into a $75 donation, and so on.)

Here’s how teachers can qualify for the boost: 

  • If you already have a live, approved project on DonorsChoose.org, you’re all set!
  • The boost will be available from 8:00 AM EST on Monday, May 6 until 3:00 AM EST on Tuesday, May 7. When a donation of any amount is made to a live, approved project within that time frame, DonorsChoose.org will automatically boost the donation by 50%.
  • The boost will be applied automatically, so donors don’t need to enter a promo code.
  • Credit card, PayPal, account credit, and gift card donations will be eligible for this boost. Check donations and donor advised funds will not receive the boost.
  • Some projects qualify for other Match Offers; in that case, those projects will receive the Match for which they currently qualify, instead of the sitewide boost.
